Emergency Community Support Fund

The Oakville Community Foundation is proud to have partnered with both Community Foundations of Canada (CFC) and the Government of Canada to deliver local funding in Oakville to qualified charities

At this time, we are no longer accepting applications as we have granted the full funding available to our community.

Launched on May 19, we’ve invested an additional $502,500 in our local community, ensuring our most vulnerable citizens are safe and healthy.

Since the start of the pandemic, charities and non-profit organizations have been leading the charge to assist those who need it most in the fight against Covid-19. However, we know the need for funding is still significant.

About the Emergency Community Support Fund

The Government of Canada’s new Emergency Community Support Fund aims to provide additional and much-needed assistance to charities and non-profit organizations serving vulnerable populations. The Government of Canada is flowing funds through national networks including CFC, United Way Centraide Canada and the Canadian Red Cross. For information on which organization you should apply through, please click here.

Vulnerable populations across Canada continue to be disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, including: marginalized groups, youth, children, the elderly, essential workers and newcomers. The goal of the ECSF is to reach 100% of communities across Canada.
